Delhi/Mumbai/Pune, December 11, 2013: TÜV SÜD South Asia today announced the launch of its first state-of-the-art environmental testing laboratory in Delhi. The NABL accredited laboratory is now recognised by the Ministry of Environment & Forests (MoEF) and the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB). The environmental laboratory comes at a juncture when Indian businesses are gearing up to build sustainability at core of their business model. The upcoming laboratory will cater to the needs of the Indian corporates, which have decided to adapt the path of sustainability and simultaneously emphasise on better practices and advanced levels of transparency. This will in turn help improve not only the company’s brand but also makes it more investor-ready than ever before.
With the best-in-class technology and experts with deep domain knowledge, the laboratory is fully equipped to provide a wide range of services like Air and water testing, Waste water testing, Pesticides residue in water, soil & waste, Ambient air/ indoor air monitoring, Compressed air testing, Stack monitoring, Soil analysis, Sludge analysis, Solid waste analysis, Petroleum products and Solid & liquid fuels.

Speaking at the occasion, Mr.Bratin Roy, AVP and Head, Energy and Environment Services, TÜV SÜD South Asia said that, “Today businesses are working towards extending their business models to integrate sustainability as a critical element to drive bottom line growth. There exists a huge void for service providers who can partner with companies to help them comply with environmental regulations that can later translate into reputational and financial benefits for the company. The launch of the environmental laboratory is a step towards reducing this void. This laboratory will cater to the environmental and testing needs of a wide range of sectors and be the epicentre of the company’s environmental services in South Asia.”
TÜV SÜD has witnessed immense growth in India in the past couple of years, driven by the increasing demand for quality and certification services across all sectors of business. The opening of the laboratory in Delhi is a significant milestone for the company, and reinforces its commitment to the market. TÜV SÜD also has a robust network of 11 consumer laboratories across the country that cater to various key sectors like food, chemical, textiles, leather and hardlines.
The addition of the environmental laboratory to its wide network of testing and inspection laboratories is a strategic step by TÜV SÜD towards growing its business in the environmental, and power sectors in India.
